So I've wanted a clean low mileage GMT800 pickup forever now, but all of the ones I've found always seem to be beat up or have a ton of miles on them. I finally ran across this one in Dallas the other day. I had a friend of mine go look at it, then I flew up there yesterday and drove it home!

 

2005 Sierra SLT  Leather, Bose, power folding mirrors. Owned by an 83 year old man that doesn't really drive anymore. The best thing about it - less than 30,000 original miles when I picked it up. It still has new car smell!  I noticed it still has the stickers on the muffler and everything underneath from the factory. It also has the original tires on it - which won't be there for long. I picked it up for $16,500. 

 

This is how it looked when I picked it up.

Last night when I got home I pulled it directly into my shop and removed all that chrome shit.

And pulled out a giant bird's nest from behind the driver turn signal

I plan on leveling the front & putting some nice tires, maybe wheels on it as well. First thing I'm gonna do is tint the windows.

Nice find! Super clean truck!

Is that an L5P Duramax I see sitting next to it?

Thanks man!

 


Ha, yes it is! Our new tow pig/garage ornament. lol 

2017 High Country. We traded in our 09 LMM. I honestly never really cared for that one too much. It was tuned/deleted. I think this one stock would damn near keep up with our old one. It's a beast. I'm going install a gooseneck in it this weekend. Can't wait to see how it tows our horse trailer.

Damn super nice! High Country no less. I have kept myself away from the dealers because I know if I drive one, my LML is getting traded. Lol

As I have read they are a beast. I guess GM really hit it out of the park with this motor.

Yeah, and the interior on this gen Silverado is unbelievable. Sooo much better quality than our 09.

So I tinted the front windows of this thing the other night after work and today I cleaned it up a bit more. I also tapped into the XM radio and added an auxiliary input. I figured the stereo was one of the first things I'd change... But I really don't mind this factory Bose for the time being. It is a million times better than my ZR2's radio.

I pulled the ZR2 out of the shop and took a picture with it. The guy is coming from San Antonio next weekend to pick it up.
